Since 2013, Warrior Expeditions has partnered with psychologists Dr. Shauna Joye (Air Force veteran) and Dr. Zachary Dietrich (Marine Corps veteran) to research the effects of long term wilderness experiences on combat veterans. To view Dr. Joye’s and Dr. Dietrich’s research click Research Summary.
During their 3-6 month outdoor expedition, veterans have the opportunity to decompress from their military service and come to terms with their wartime experiences.
Veterans participating in Warrior Expeditions programs experience their journey with the camaraderie of other veterans who understand the challenges of transitioning from military service to civilian life.
Interaction with community supporters during their journey facilitates a veteran’s reintegration into society, restores their faith in humanity, and builds a network of life-long friendships and relationships.
